MSC Zimbabwe Staff with a child from Ngozi Mine

Mustard Seed Communities Zimbabwe was established in July 2002 and is located in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe’s second largest city. MSC Zimbabwe began addressing the needs of the poor with a small nutrition program, proving a simple meal to children who would otherwise go hungry. 

Ngozi Mine is a garbage dump on the outskirts of Bulawayo where over two thousand people reside in makeshift shacks. Recognizing the severe poverty, subhuman living conditions and lack of food, Mustard Seed Communities Zimbabwe took action and established a nutrition program at the site in December of 2016.

Prior to the pandemic, Mustard Seed Communities Zimbabwe fed 500 children a day. The need has skyrocketed. Today, MSC Zimbabwe strives to feed 1000 children each day. It is a simple meal of sadza (cooked maize meal), sour milk (curdled milk), and beans.  The cost to provide a child with one meal is eighty cents. Ten dollars feeds 12 children. Every dollar you give has an immediate impact on the life of a hungry child.

A generous donor has offered to match all gifts during #GivingTuesday to feed the children in Zimbabwe.  Every dollar you give will be matched. Make a gift here to make a direct impact.

Every action we take affects and influences the lives of others, and in return our lives are equally affected. It is because of you that the children of Ngozi Mine are being fed. They are because of you.
